Regime threatens to cut Seoul ties

October 16, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

North Korea threatened to break off all relations with South Korea if its new conservative government continues what the North called a policy of reckless confrontation with the communist nation.

The warning, issued in a commentary in the North's main newspaper Rodong Sinmun, means Pyongyang could terminate civilian exchanges with the South, including a tourism program and a joint industrial complex, which have continued despite a freeze in government-level ties.

South Korea played down the threat.
